Last week I wore my birdlocked for 5 days straight without release. Of course I showered each day and used the jet shower to flush out the device as best I could each day. With a CB6000 I could use a sponge cleaning swap but this doesn't fit inside the birdlocked, so I did the best I could. Well, yesterday I had to remove the device since my foreskin was beginning to swell - not circumsized. 24 hours on and the swelling has not gone down and it looks like I have an infection presumably from not being able to clean myself as well as I could in the CB6000. I have not had this issue in the CB range. So this is just a warning that if you intend to have long term lock up with a birdlocked and especially if you are uncut, be very aware of hygiene. I would recommend removing the device for cleaning each day.
